Starter motor on this car is imposible to get to..better find the post forward of the drivers side fuse box in the engine compartment where a bunch of wires come together. This is a positive terminal attach red jumper here put the negative jumper on any bare metal bracket of the engine

If you haven't tried the emergency slide out key on the main ignition fob,slide it out and slide it into the trunk button keyhole,turn 90 degress and push button/key,trunk should open. At least it did on my 98 c280.

Ive been working all day and tried all suggestions. I called Mercedes dealer said he can order a new key for it but I have to go to the dealer to pick it up. Really! Tough to do when my car is dead. Its a 98 C20 Sport. The key wont even go in the lock. Who was the brain surgeon who thought it was a good idea to put an electric lock on the trunk? Liability waiting to happen!

Dead battery in locked trunk (Mercedes 1990)


Many People don't know exactly how to use the manual key attached to your remote to open the doors and trunk in case the battery is dead. All you have to do is slide the locking button in the back of your remote and pull the metal pre-cut key, then insert it in the trunk lock, turn key to the left and then push in. kawaboongha!!!
